Project Management: Peak efficiency, total productivity.

Project management requires unparalleled visibility. By linking everything from planning to execution, you can see (and control) all stages of a project. You don’t just check on timelines, you own them, with advanced sourcing tools for assessing project status and meeting dates.

When you can see the whole process, you’re in total control. By integrating eSourcing efforts as part of wider  strategic sourcing efforts that include spend analysis, supplier management and contract management, you ensure total productivity.

RFx Management: Turning RFx into ROI.

RFx is all about outcomes: drive sourcing efficiencies, supplier optimization and negotiated cost savings. Better outcomes require better inputs. We make it easy, with preconfigured best-in-class sourcing templates that integrate with supplier profiles.

You can easily create RFx events by type (RFI, RFP, RFQ), streamlining RFx-to-award cycles and improving efficiencies in managing supplier events and supplier awards. The outcome? Best-value agreements, every time.

eAuction

e-Auction: A bid for maximum savings.

Auctions are RFx on steroids—eAuctions put the negotiation into the hands of the suppliers and and give you immediate market information at your fingertips in a matter of hours or minutes. To make your competitive sourcing toolbox as robust as possible, leverage sealed bids, Dutch and English auctions, and forward and reverse auctions.

By creating auctions from scratch, or turning your RFPs into auctions, you can drive competitive and open pricing scenarios to identify more savings from suppliers. Real-time competitive bidding assessment makes it easy to compare and achieve direct cost reductions.
